Ensuring College Success: Scaffolding Experiences for Students and Faculty in an Early College School

Anne Newton, JFF; and Kristen Vogt, Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation

The Science, Technology and Research Early College School, working closely with Brooklyn College—a partnership that has been supported by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation since 2003—has amassed an impressive record in its first five years. STAR’s successful early outcomes are the result of the ambitious goals and careful planning of the school and its partners. The key to the design is a multiyear transition plan that gradually introduces students to college-going experiences and the demands of college coursework, while providing a wide variety of supports tailored to individual needs. Ensuring College Success is a joint publication of JFF and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
